Pioneer's new ew HDJ-2000 professional DJ headphones available by the end of this year, featuring a new sleek design and enhancements.
First up, the HDJ-2000s' frequency response is optimised for pro DJ use and promises to offer clarity with clear separation. This applies to any demanding environment, whether it's performing in a packed club or engineering in a studio. In fact, the HDJ-2000s' 50 mm driver units and high-flux magnets create outstanding resolution, from bass to treble, and are ideal for studio applications. Yet another neat feature is the capacity for 3,500 mW of input, which means distortion is prevented, even at sustained loud volumes.
Sporting a rugged but lightweight magnesium swivel/fold mechanism the headphones are robust, comfortable and compact to transport. Each ear-cup gives great insulation and swivels a full 90 degrees using a new i-hinge with auto-return, which presents great flexibility, especially for DJs who prefer the 'on-shoulder' method of monitoring. To improve monitoring, there is also a convenient STEREO/MONO switch. Finally, heat-sensitive, low-rebound urethane-foam (memory-foam) padding with a comfortable protein leather surface cushions the ears and head for a no-fatigue fit.
The HDJ-2000s will be available from late 2008 with a suggested retail price of €229 (excluding VAT).
